Does anyone else have problems eating grapes and raisins? Due to extreme lack of food in my kitchen, i downed almost a cup of raisins last night. It seemed like a good idea at the time but now i'm gassier than a 65 year old man on thanksgiving... not to mention in the grips of some hellish cramps. I also recall eating a bowl of grapes last weekend and cursing my life. Can anyone sympathize?

Raisins generally make me vomit, so I've never eaten that many.I do know one of my old neighbors didn't think twice when her kid--still in diapers--grabbed a big box of raisins and happily ate most of the box on the way home.Until then next day when she pooped and pooped and pooped and... Could be that grapes are a trigger food for you (I can eat grapes but not raisins). OTOH raisen are concentrated fiber so it could also be a big change in fiber from one day to the next and that can cause GI upset.K.------------------I have no financial, academic, or any other stake in any commercial product mentioned by me.And from the as if IBS isn't enough of a worry file...from New Scientist's Feedback column: photographed on the door of a ladies' loo in the Sequoia National Park in California by reader Liz Masterman: "Please keep door closed to discourage bears from entering."[This message has been edited by kmottus (edited 02-10-2001).]
